Biography:

Samuel Phillips, photographer, and Adam Stephan, lithographer, began working on their process in 1884, and in late 1887 formed the company. A Melbourne company was established in June 1889 and a Brisbane branch was also contemplated in that year. The building it occupied by the Melbourne company was destroyed by fire in January 1890.
